What’s in a name? A lot apparently. Did you know that each letter in your name and its position shows how it influences you as a person and what type of person you are? It’s all based on numerology.
We’ll look at three basic concepts here. The first is what is called a cornerstone. This is the first letter of your first name. The cornerstone reveals what your personality is like or how you approach things in life, both good and bad.
Then there is the capstone, or the last letter in your first name. This letter shows how well you follow through with projects you start in life. This could be simple projects involving mundane things or it could be major projects that effect you in a big way.
The first vowel in your name represents what is called the heart’s desire. This letter is revealing of your soul, or the ‘real’ you. Whatever drives you to place your feet on the floor and go about your day or anything that affects you to the core, such as your goals, hopes, dreams, desires, is signified by this letter.
This letter also represents the secretive part of yourself. People who know you best, whether is be family, a best friend, spouse, or confidant, may know how this letter relates to you but others probably won’t.
Keeping that in mind, I’m going to go out on a limb here and dissecting my name for you, as an example of the things I’ve mentioned. And just so you know, Kelli is my real name and not a pen name. It is important that this is done on your birth name. Here we go.
The K in my name means enlightenment. K people feel deeply and are usually artistic. They rely on their gut or intuition to help them make decisions. They are ‘high strung’ people who must be aware of their anxiety levels as well as hesitation.
If you remember, the cornerstone is revealing of personality. So yes, the letter K fits me to a tee and those who know me would agree. Before I make an decisions in life, especially major ones, I trust my gut instincts. They have rarely led me wrong. Now, I may have chose to ignore them, but it bites me in the ass when I do.
The “I” in my name means compassion. People with a capstone of the letter “I” feel deeply, very deeply. They are creative, artistic folk who have a magnificent eye for the beauty in things from clothing to writing. The downside of the letter “I” is that you should have direction when approaching or finishing projects because you tend get ‘sidetracked’. To be successful, you must find balance.
Again, so revealing of me because I love to start new projects, but boy do I get sidetracked. This is where my writing sister is keeping me on track. Until she and I linked up, I could go days without writing, but now, with her assistance and encouragement, I keep motivated and focused.
Now we get to my secret letter, my heart’s desire. The first vowel in my name is the letter E. This letter means freedom, sensuality, and enthusiasm. People with the letter E as their heart’s desire love their freedom. They are enthusiastic about many things and are in touch with their sensual side. They love passionately. Falling in love is important to them because they do it so easily and often. The letter E as the heart’s desire are people who generally are the life of the party. But don’t think this person is all about fun and games. They have a serious side and are hard to fool. Most often, they see both sides of an argument and can see good and evil in everything.
Again, this hits the nail on the head when it comes to me. I won’t go into all the details, since this does reveal a lot about me, other than to say that I do have a big heart and I’m in love with being in love. That may be the reason I write about romance and love.
Oh, and I can be the life of the party. I’m the one who always laughs the loudest and does the backwards head toss when I laugh at something. Though I have moments that I’m gullible, and it’s usually when I’m not really paying attention, most of the time I’m a hard one to fool, especially if I can look you in the eye.
So does numerology in your name work? It did for me, though I’m sure there are skeptics. We’re all entitled to our own beliefs. I thought it was fun to dissect my name because it is right on the money. I tried my husbands name, too, and it had the same results.
Interested to know about your name? Leave me a comment and I’ll ‘dissect’ it. If you want it to remain private, just add your email address and I’ll email the info to you.
Very interesting how a name can say so much about a person.
I agree Jacqueline. When I first started dissecting my name, it was freaky how close it came to truth. I got goose bumps, lol. Thanks for commenting!
My first vowel is E too and that so describes me! I love these things. Feel free to ‘dissect’ mine if you like! 🙂
Hi Rebecca! I have dissected your name.
R is your cornerstone letter. R people feel things with strong emotions. These same emotions have a way of projecting outwards to those around you. This can be good or bad, depending on the emotion. You have a lot of energy when needed and can be quite the ‘go-getter’ in work or play. Though your nature is a kind one, make sure you keep your strong emotions and high energy balanced so that you do not come off too aggressive.
A is your capstone letter. A represents ambition. You are the person who can get the job done and you see your projects through. You’re a born leader and rarely give in under pressure. The downside: You have to be flexible. Be open to other people and their ideas.
With E as your heart’s desire, you will be able to see the good and bad in most situations. This will help you decided whom you should be more flexible with. The fact that E also represents those who love passionately coincides with your kind nature. People may want to take advantage of your good warmheartedness, but since you have the ability to see both good and bad, this will save you from trouble and or heartache, so long as you listen to that little voice inside your head.
Loved this post, totally up for you “dissecting” my name 🙂
Here we go 🙂
Your cornerstone letter is M. There is one word to describe you: workaholic. You believe in getting the job done and you’re not afraid to put in the hours required to do so. You can function off little sleep if need be, without putting your health at too high a risk. Just don’t over do it. Not everyone is as driven as you, so be patient with those who can’t keep up. When you’re not putting your all into some type of work effort, you are content to stay at home.
A is your capstone letter. A represents ambition. This coincides with your workaholic behavior. You would make a great projects manager or coordinator because you see your projects through. You work well under pressure. The downside: You have to be flexible. Just like your letter M, be patient, open, and understanding to other people and their ideas.
I is your heart’s desire. You have a big heart. If your hurt someone, intentionally or unintentionally, it sticks with you until you receive their forgiveness. Artistic things appeal to you and you love to be surrounded by these same things. You could go to a museum and admire paintings and sculptures. You love music and wouldn’t mind attending a local concert. But since you are content at home, staying in with loved ones to watch a movie is just as fulfilling as dressing up to go on the town. To put it simply, you love life and those you’ve allowed to be a part of yours. Enjoy!
I fit with your ‘K’, but not necessarily the ‘E’ No one would call me the life of the party. 🙂
I wonder what I am to follow because if I take the name my parents gave me at birth, Kina, the letters you mention above fit me perfectly.
However, I was christened Hendrikje and that is officially my legal name.
But from birth my parents intended Kina as my name and that is what I have been called all my childhood, Hendrikje was just a way to honor my fathers mother and never used except for official documents. So what name should be “dissected” then?
These day’s I go by Kira, but the pricipal letters remain the same there.
Thank you and it was very interesting to read this article.
From everything I’ve studied, it’s the name your parents give you, which is normally you legal name. I haven’t ran across a situation like yours. I will check into it. Thanks for the comment.
Which i pay a visit to fresh web site day to day and i also uncovered yuor web blog.
Interesting post. Would you like to dissect my name? : )
Hi Kelli.. I found your post very interesting. I would love for you to break down my name for me when you have time if you are still doing it! 🙂
Do middle names count? If so, mine is Nicole
As another Kelli, this suits me perfectly too! Pretty cool. 🙂
